At 2 p.m. Wednesday, Jets head coach Rex Ryan said, in an effort to curb the rash of turnovers by his rookie quarterback Geno Smith, he was considering going to the red-yellow-green color-coded wristband he used with Mark Sanchez in his rookie year.
In a radio interview about three hours later, though, Ryan backtracked from that plan.
The fact Ryan was considering it gives you an idea of the gravity of the situation, with Smith’s 11 turnovers in four games killing the team. And the fact he backed off of the idea three hours after volunteering it to reporters gives you an idea of how clueless Ryan and his coaching staff are about how to fix the problem.
